Al and Nellie are both correct.
Government (Public) employees should have better pay and benefits but this will only be achieved when the vast majority of Bulgarians wake up to the fact that the Goverment can not print money; it must come from the taxpayer. The trouble is, of course, that most Bulgarians know people who obviously have a lot of money and, equally obviously, don't appear to pay much (if anything) in tax. It is therefore understandable when they ask "Why should I pay tax, when they don't".
The buck must stop somewhere but that's the problem.
Unless the present generation are prepared to change their attitude, their children and grandchildren will continue to suffer with exactly the same problems as there are today and Bulgaria will continue to be a third world country.
"Or will that additional payment be attached to the daily bribes disapearing into the pockets of iniformed policemen!!!"
The boys in uniform are just trying to generate some cash revenue to help out their bankrupt police department. lol
"A reasonable salary, a good pension scheme and harsh punishments for accepting bribes are the only ways to minimize police corruption."
And where is this "reasonable salary" and "good pension scheme" going to come from? Since police, fire and the other public service agencies do not generate revenue, who is going fo fund them? The government on their shoe string budget? Who to fund first? Education, police, fire, army, who? And since the government generates revenue by taxation, and no one in Bulgaria wants to pay taxes, how is the government going to get money for decent salaries? Or do you expect the government to keep stealing EU funds like they been doing? I am afraid that ship has sailed. Bulgaria has to find other sources of revenue, and think about cutting salaries and benefits now.
Extra pay for what? For the former Secretary Generals of the MInistri of Interior, and now Mayor of Sofia, success in combating crime,? Or will that additional payment be attached to the daily bribes disapearing into the pockets of iniformed policemen!!!
